Inhaltsangabe: David Lear, 10 years old, has never known anybody quite like his mother. She can be so caring, so warm and funny, but there are times when her drinking sweeps her away and her affection gives way to verbal abuse and sometimes even violence. Then David tries to run away from home and is sent to boarding school.
To confront the legacy of his family, he spends time with a father he hasn't seen in years, a stepmother who loathes him, and a mysterious benefactress who pays for his schooling. They offer bits and pieces of revelation, but at the center is his mother, Maggie Hope, whose life has long since slipped its moorings.
The question is whether something similar will happen to David or whether he will succeed, as he becomes a young man, in finding the strength to make his way in the world.
Über den Autor: Anthony Abbott is a native of San Francisco who received his undergraduate degree from Princeton University and his PhD from Harvard University. The former chairman of the Department of English at Davidson College in North Carolina, he is the author of four books of poetry.
